Through Michael Fewer's selection of articles, excerpts, letters and journal entries we experience the beauty of high moors and mountains, see the conditions of the peasantry improve from poverty to wealth, mark the evolution of politics and society, and most of all enjoy the pleasures of exploring Ireland on foot. The interests of the contributors are many, from the antiquities of the countryside to drinking and singing, from botany to the delights of mountain-climbing and from superstition and folklore to the quality of inns. But common to all is an immediacy, an intensity of experience of both the countryside and the people, with which traveling on foot infuses their writing. A Walk in Ireland will take the reader, whether an enthusiastic walker or an armchair traveller, on a colourful and eventful journey through time and the Irish countryside.
